TIED/APART: Selected Artwork from the Second Issue of PAFA’s Student-Run Art Journal “Dumb”
While our 1st issue searched for connection and meaning in our work and feedback, this issue gives attention to the loss and slipperiness between the two. Which two is a question based in relation, and since we already looked for meaning within the content, this time we look for the content of the forms. In other words, we sought out the invisible lines of boundaries and things left unsaid. We wondered how blockages take shape and what is not made explicit in the darkness. A counterpoint to (or escape from) our previous hermeneutic loop, this issue is no longer concerned with knowing what is behind the curtains, but rather, we want to see what the curtains are made of.
